About me

I provide a safe and confidential space to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviour. I am particularly interested in the person's true nature and full potential. By engaging in a non judgemental environment and a supportive relationship, I seek to help you to gain a better understanding of your struggle, and create better choices for yourself.

The integrative approach facilitates me to address individual client's needs in a collaborative process. I have experience of working with individuals regarding a wide range of issues and cultural backgrounds. This includes low mood, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, relational trauma, separation, work-related stress, bipolar disorder, chronic illness, health anxiety, personality issues, anger management, bereavement, sexuality, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, identity and cultural issues.

I have provided both focused/short-term counselling and in-depth/open-ended therapy with the NHS IAPT service, Richmond Borough Mind, and several charitable organisations.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling, Advance Diploma and a MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abide by the BACP Code of Ethics.

I have studied Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy - Externship, Core Skills 1, 2, 3 & 4 training dedicated to working with couples and am also a registered member of International Centre for Excellence In Emotionally Focused Therapy. (ICEEFT).

I have completed the teacher training of Mindfulness-based Compassionate Living Course. I run a 8-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Programme.

I receive regular supervision and undertake continued professional development to ensure the quality of my work.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

My previous career as a scriptwriter has led me to be particularly attended to clients' narratives. Each individual has their unique story to tell. Each contains elements of significant people, conflicts, struggles and resources. It may impact the way we see ourselves, others and the world.

By engaging in the process of therapy, we may open up new possibilities and to rewrite our stories.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
